LaCava, Dipoto, or Ng (or Zduriencik)
Woodfork, Bernazard, and the internals have been eliminated from the GM search, according to Baker and Stone. LaCava and Dipoto are apparently in Seattle for a second interview, and Ng will have hers shortly, now that LA is out of the playoffs.
Smart money is on LaCava. He’s the most experienced of the three, is very tight with Bob Fontaine, and has a great reputation with people who Armstrong is taking advice from. I wouldn’t be surprised if the M’s were introducing LaCava as their new GM early next week.
Baker adds that Jack Zduriencik is the fourth candidate, who didn’t come out in the prior reports because he interviewed Monday, after Milwaukee got eliminated. He’s a tremendous scouting director, responsible for most of the talent the Brewers currently have, but is less statistically inclined than the other three. I wouldn’t be unhappy with Zduriencik, but probably prefer LaCava.
